Al Broadfoot Heroes

I nominate Al Broadfoot because of his immense contribution to Canada's railway heritage through the restoration and and operation of over 10 steam locomotives including CPR Royal Hudson #2860, CNR #6060, and CPR #2816.

Without Al Broadfoot the CPR wouldn't have a steam locomotive or a steam program, Canada wouldn't have seen North America's longest steam double header (1989 Vancouver - Jasper, with CNR 6060 and CPR 2860), nor would it have seen the BC Rail steam program which he supervised for 27 years.

As well I wouldn't have the skills to follow a career with steam locomotives without his open, enthusiastic, and generous, tutelage in the art of steam preservation.
